If you want to go

on an archaeological dig, there are scholarships available. Here is the post by the Biblical Archaeology Society in full

The Biblical Archaeology Society, publisher of BAR, offers dig scholarships of $2,000 each to people who wish to participate in a dig and demonstrate financial need. To apply, send a résumé, cover letter, and full contact information for two references (professional or academic) in one email to scholarships@bib-arch.org or by mail to BAS Dig Scholarships, 4710 41st St., NW, Washington, DC 20016, USA. In your letter, explain where and why you want to excavate, and why you should be selected for a scholarship. Priority will be given to first-time dig participants. Applications must be received by March 20, 2020.
